SPECIAL EVENT

WHAT:  Guided Bird Walks to help educate the public on
Florida’s beach-nesting birds.
WHERE: Pensacola Beaches and rooftops.
WHEN: Wednesday Evenings at 6 pm on June 14, 21 and 28 and Friday Mornings at 10 am on June 9,16 and 30.

Birds are nesting, eggs are hatching, and chicks will be out and about. Summer is here and that brings a lot more people to our beaches. This means we need more protection for our cute little chicks! We have opportunities where you can help on Pensacola Beaches and rooftops.

Learn about the issues facing these important bird species: beach impacts, habitat decline, predation, and hear about statewide efforts to reverse the declining population trends.

Volunteer help is needed! If you like the beach, birds, and want to be a part of these community conservation efforts, come learn about Audubon’s Bird Steward program with Andrea!  INFORMATION FLYER LINK
